THE WAY
jesusistheway.gif

  Lost and Found                  

(This was based on a dream I had)

I was lost in a strange city,     

without memory of arriving.

I wandered around blindly,

Bewildered and in a daze,

                     Through streets wide and narrow,                                 

Looking to me like a maze.

I asked the people around me,

If they could help me please,

As I was lost and afraid,

And could not find my way.

But nobody seemed to know or care,

Which was the right way for me.

 

It seemed like hours I wandered,

Until I reached a quiet place.

The streets were quiet and shaded.

Not another person in sight.

Then I saw a man standing alone.

Walking up to him I asked,

Sir can you help me please.

Smiling, he spoke my name and said.

My child look up and straight ahead

I looked up and saw, straight and true

Like a stream of pure light,

       THE WAY.

 

 

   Your Kingdom

I walk in your kingdom,

Your kingdom is here.

I wait for your kingdom,

It is yet to come.

I rejoice in your kingdom,

The kingdom within.

I delight in your kingdom,

The kingdom within.

THE ROADWAY OF LIFE

   The Roadway of Life

When walking along the roadway of life,

And you know in your heart

There is something better.

Seek the one who loves you,

Who eagerly awaits your surrender.

Give your heart to Jesus,

And put your trust in Him.

Take the hand he offers to you,

And he will guide you all the way.

If you should stumble or fall,

He is always there to pick you up.

He will dust you down and set you straight,

Then off you go once more, hand in hand.

So dont be slow, dont waste time,

Before that long roadway ends,

Give your life to Jesus and walk with Him.

         

DYING TO SELF

      Dying to Self

A moth, fluttering and flying,

Dazzled by the light of a candle

Hits the flame and dies

And I, drawn to the light of Christ

Drawn to the light of love

Throw myself into the flame

And die, yes die to self

Then from the flame of Christ

I rise to live a new life

A life living in the Light of Christ.

THE WALL BROKEN
Brick

                   The Wall, Broken

                 In sickness pain and depression,

                 I felt unloved and rejected,

                 Thinking myself unloved and unlovable,

                 I turned away from those I loved.

                 I built a wall around myself,

                 A wall of stone so safe and secure,

                 To keep out the hurts and rejections,

                 I imagined others tossed at me.

                 Secure behind this wall, I was the one,

                 Who was hurting those who loved me.

               There I would have stayed, sunk in self-pity,

                 If my Lord had not spoken to me,

                 I have broken down that wall he said

                 And trampled it to dust

                 So you are free once more to love and trust
